Indian astronomers help reveal violent flaring in a black hole

A team of Indian and British astronomers recorded violent “crackling” and “flaring” of visible light and X-ray radiations coming from a growing black hole system around 10,000 light-years away. The black hole system, discovered in 2018, has the mass of about seven Suns collapsed into a region smaller than London, researchers said. The Indian researchers were from Pune’s IUCAA institution.
